mmon is a tiny monitor program for the VR4300 MIPS processor. It can operate with NO working RAM, using only the processor registers, so it can be useful for hardware bringup, including testing a RAM controller.
With minor changes, mmon should be usable on other 64-bit MIPS processors. mmon was originally assembled using the SDE-MIPS tool chain from Algorithmics, which is probably no longer avaialble.
Alexander Voropay has ported mmon to run on QEMU, building with the GNU toolchain.
|db <addr1> [<<addr2>>]||dump memory bytes from addr1 to <addr2> (non-inclusive)|
|dh <addr1> [<<addr2>>]||dump memory half-words (16-bit)|
|dw <addr1> [<<addr2>>]||dump memory words (32-bit)|
|sb <addr> <data>...||store one byte of data to address|
|sh <addr> <data>...||store one half-word (16-bit) of data to address|
|sw <addr> <data>...||store one word (32-bit) of data to address|
|swl <addr> <data>||store word left|
